Why Systems-Built Construction?
Systems-built construction offers many competitive advantages over conventional site built construction. The following table shows a side by side comparison of each method.
| ||Systems-Built Construction||Conventional Construction|
|Speed: ||Year-round assembly with up to 50% faster time to occupancy.||Longer construction schedules due to sequential building process and weather delays.|
Site preparation and component construction proceed concurrently
Primary components arrive on your site up to 85% complete and ready to set permanently into place.
Each step depends on the preceding step, creating a potential for cascading delays in the project.
|Security: ||Your building envelope is completed in days and materials are locked away from pilferage.|
Building materials are insecure for longer periods of time, tempting thieves and potentially costing you money.
|Quality:||Consistent high quality components are produced by full-time professionals within a controlled environment while protected from the weather.||Inconsistent quality caused by differences in weather, labor, and jobsite conditions.|
|Health:||A “Greener” way to build. Construction has a low impact on site surroundings and is environmentally friendly. Finished buildings have cleaner air quality.||Construction causes long term disruption on site and produces more landfill waste. Exposed building materials encourage possible mold growth, producing poor air quality.|
|Expansion:||Systems fundamental design means expandability is built into each project.|
Engineering requirements are significant.
Less time paying interest on financing.Revenue from occupancy begins up to 50% faster
Financing is required over a longer timeframe.
Occupancy revenue is lower because of longer time to finish.Expensive replacement of building materials is possible due to pilferage and weather damage.
